McMagical Productions is holding auditions for Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat! Told entirely through song with the help of Narrators, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

This is a non-Equity, non-paying production. McMagical Productions is a non-profit organization. All proceeds from this fundraising event will be donated to the Lung Cancer Research Foundation. For more information please visit www.lungcancerresearchfoundation.org.
